How I Made $200k Making Video Games

BEFORE I WAS INVOLVED IN SOCIAL MEDIA

MY FRIEND AND I STARTED AN INDIE GAMING COMPANY

WE DEVELOPED HALF A DOZEN MOBILE GAMES

GAME DESIGN WAS FUN. I GREW UP PLAYING VIDEO GAMES AND BEING TO MAKE MONEY FROM DESIGNING GAMES WAS THE NEXT THING.

WE MADE GOOD SIDE HUSTLE INCOME

IT HELPED THE VOID Of THE 9-5 THAT WE BOTH WORKED AT AND IT WAS OUR CHANCE TO LET OUR CREATIVITY RUN WILD.

THERE WAS ONE GAME THAT PUT US ON THE MAP

OUR GAMES HAD BEEN DECENTLY SUCCESSFUL UP UNTIL THAT POINT, THEN IT JUST EXPLODED.

6 MONTHS WE MADE 6 FIGURES

WE COULDNT BELIEVE OUR EYES WHEN WE LOOKED AT THE DATA. PEOPLE WERE BUYING, SHARING, PLAYING, AND TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT THE GAME

BUT THERE WAS ONE MASSIVE PROBLEM

IT WASN'T SUSTAINABLE. THE MOMENTUM WOULDN'T LAST AND WE KNEW IT. WE SHUT IT DOWN.

MORAL OF THE STORY...

WE DIDN'T FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY. WE JUST FOLLOWED TRENDS AND WHAT WAS HOT. IT WAS LIKE TRYING TO SPRINT A MARATHON.

SO WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS... ARE YOU MAKING SURE ITIS SUSTAINABLE?

ARE YOU JUST COPYING THE LATEST TRENDS?

BUDDY TOSS

IT WAS A RAG DOLL GAME WHERE YOU WOULD DRESS UP YOUR CHARACTER AND THROW HIM A FIELD AND AIM FOR A TARGET.

THE CLOSER, THE MORE POINTS YOU GOT.

KIDS LOVED SEEING THEIR CHARACTERS ACROSS LAND AND SMASH INTO THINGS.

CAN STILL DOWNLOAD THIS GAME If YOU WANT TO TRY IT OUT.
